Aluminum sulfate treatment: Short-term effect on complex phosphorus compounds in a eutrophic lake
- 54 Downloads
Application of aluminum sulfate to the hypolimnion of West Twin Lake, a hardwater eutrophic lake in northeastern Ohio, did not efficiently remove complex phosphorus compounds from the water column. The majority of the complex phosphorus compounds remaining after alum treatment released P04 following brief treatment with alkaline phosphatase.
